I have a question about Grouping…

I understand how to Group a grid view.
I am doing so by a Multi-Select field, called “Topic”.
The problem (which is one of preference) is that some of my items have more than one Topic assigned. The way Grouping works, it shows distinct groups for combinations of Topic, eg. Not only a Group showing items with a “Red” Topic, but also a Group for items with “Red”, “Green” AND “Blue” Topics.

I’m curious if I could force a Group to show all the items with the corresponding Topic. It is confusing to see this many Group combinations thanks to Multi-Select.

This would be so simple with a checkbox to 'split multiple values'. Official response is here from airtable and the suggested workaround is poor — create views for every multiselect item which would be super tedious!

I need to share a view with unique groups and multiple views doesn't work at all for this use case. I suggest visiting that support article and responding to the page with feedback about how poor this suggested workaround is.
